The women have little control over the men and they slowly gain their power by manipulating men and using their sexual desires to entice them, thus giving women more control over men which is very rare.

Although we can say that there are stereotypes about both men and women in this show, there is one fact that puts male characters in the privileged position over the female ones: the female characters always seem to be defined by their relationships with their male partners.
